Biography

He moved to Seattle at an early age. He stayed there until his second year of college, when he transferred to San Jose State in California. He graduated from there with a BA in English and Drama. He made use of these degrees after he moved to Hollywood in 1955.

In addition to his work as an actor, Forest also began training as a boxer in an effort to combine both of his passions. However, his coach cautioned against such actions, as one bad facial injury could end his acting career prematurely. Upon receiving this advice, Forest turned his efforts wholly over to acting. He broke into film in the 1950s, alternating work for Roger Corman with work on the stage. He met Corman while studying acting from Jeff Corey. Due to their own production work, he gained roles in movies such as Beast from Haunted Cave and Ski Troop Attack. His breakout role, however, happened when he played Apollo in the Star Trek episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?", which he landed due to his affinity with Shakespearean language.

In 1968, Forest moved to Rome and continued to act in movies and television. He became fluent in Italian and preformed in numerous movies and Television shows across Western Europe. He continued this pattern until 1978, when he moved back to the United States to New York. Once there, he continued acting in movies and tv and even ended up on Broadway preforming in the show, Breakfast With Les and Bess. After his stent in New York, Michael Forest moved back to Los Angeles and became a member of Theater 40, truly beginning the voice acting stage of his life.

Outside of acting, Michael Forest is an avid pilot, having earned his license while living in New York. He is known to go out flying whenever his busy schedule permits him to do so.
